Just curious because doesn't it give some candidates a significant advantage when they can quickly find the roots of tan(2x) = 3 or quickly see the effect of multiple translations on a function f(x) etc. Bloody elitist pay to win bullocks.
On the other hand, there is a slightly amusing story about someone using a graphical calc in the OCR C2 exam; one of the questions demanded that we state what transformation maps 3^(x) to 3^(x-3). This person put in 3^x-3 (w/ out brackets!) into the graphing calc and stated that is was a transformation in the y-direction! Had he not had his graph calc, he might have got the marks. JUSTICE!
Why are graphical calculators permitted in OCR Core maths exams ? Watch

it is really unfair for poor students who cannot afford any kind of calculator, or even a book of logarithm tables.
